I kinda wish Gokaiyellow's boxing style was used for the others. Chrome color scratches way too easy. I just paid off my luka and ahim as well so I hope we get some reviews soon.

What's different about the paint on GokaiYellow's box?

Anyway, paid for mine last night. Riderproxy should be sending it soon.

I also have GokaiPink preordered at a particular website I've never used before (but looks reliable) and at an extremely reasonable price, and GokaiSilver preordered at HLJ. And I need to hunt down a Kaoru (really thinking about getting the one chichoc has up for sale) and preordering a GoseiKnight. And these are the only sentai Figuarts I will have to pay for until April.

On the matter of KR Figuarts, I'm still not sure which to go after first. What regular releases (or even exclusives) appear to be relatively rare and quite expensive to get at the moment?

Well from what I saw from that link, Yellow's box is damn freaking thick. They decided to drop the idea of separate box Darins and included the Darins at the back of the box like how the Rekka Daizantou was put in Shinken Red.

Did you narrow down which series you want first? Atm im actually considering getting either Kiva Emperor, or New Den-O Trilogy Ver.

And hell im still waiting on my bloody Gokai Blue and Green to come in.... >_<

Well I'd consider getting a figure from pretty much any series if its price would double or so in a few months.

My W collection is relatively almost complete and I'm thinking of spending a bit more on it to get a few of the ones I do not have.

Kiva hasn't had that much released (I'm only missing Rising IXA which I'm on the search for). I'd like some of the Ryuki ones or perhaps Amazon but I'm wondering whether they will all be re-released in the future so it would be better going after a few OOO exclusives I missed (Greeed, Birth CLAWs, Tamashii and Burakawani). Collecting Den-O Imagin would be great but they are just too expensive. Same for New Den-O Vega Form and Yuuki. Thank god I have G Den-O and New Den-O.

But yeah, which do you think is more worth to buy now because it will be too expensive later? I know it will be guessing, but I'd like to see what people think first.

I got some SHFiguarts for Christmas. Sadly my ShinkenPink snapped at her right hip. I'm very delicate with it as it is and she can't quite do that kneeling pose from the box. Anybody else have problems with her?

Yea that happened mine, and i sent it back to Japan and got a replacement thanks to CS toys (whom i bought it from). Basically i did what a couple people recommended and used WD-40 and I let it sit for like a day and instantly it was able to move and not be so tight.

Yes, it's a common problem and QC issue. There's several ways to solve this issue.

I wonder if Pink just has overly-tight joints.


I also finally managed to get the ball out of the joint. Here's the extent of the damage.



This is what happened to mine. How did you get the ball joint out?

I'm actually weighing whether to try to get another ShinkenPink (which could have the same flaws) or simply wait for Super ShinkenPink (which may be an inevitability) and buy 2 of her for the new hopefully corrected hips.

I used a pair of pliers to pull it out. I'm going to eventually buy another regular Pink. Not interested in the Super form.

I was thinking of buying the super form JUST to get her lower body to attach to the ShinkenPink I have now. I hoping the parts are compatible.

They won't be unless you wish to massacre the coat as it's molded onto the body.

I guess I didn't realize yours had already snapped off, I don't know of a way to fix that one sorry. Premium Bandai doesn't offer any replacements for the their exclusives sadly. Depending on where you got it, they might get you a replacement but it would be at their loss since they can't recoup the cost of the lost figure.

First off, thank you so much for all the advice. I have friends that work for Bandai USA, and hopefully they can help (although unlikely, as they are run separately).

The Super Shinken Pink's upper body I don't need. I would only require her lower torso, primarily her crotchpiece and legs, to replace my Shinken Pink's lower torso. My only gripe would be if Super Shinkenpink doesn't have hip with the hip holes/plugs for the segmented skirt pieces. Ugh I might have to buy 2 ShinkenRed females and give her crotch to pink. It may be a better solution.

I've now read some complaints about ShinkenPink and somewhat ShinkenYellow. Does Kaoru ShinkenRed female have the same issues or are her hips better?

Alernatively, you could do what modelers and warhammer people call "Pinning". You use a small drill to make holes for a small metal rod. This will add stability where Crazy/Super glue cannot. Super Glue will hold the hip together, and the pin will return the functional weight it can support.

Yellow had a couple pieces fall off like the sword holster, but no problems like Pink.

And Kaoru is devoid of any problems that I know of, and they do come apart at the waist.

I remember reading that a few Yellows had two left arms, like the upper section and joints on the right arm were the same mold from the left arm. I'm not sure what happened with that issue?

Package looks nice. It's a shame he doesn't come with Venosnaker though.

Here are some clearer pictures of Ankh: Complete.






The Stage-Act stand they have shown is pretty interesting. It has profiles icons of the Greeeds. Looking it over I think it reads "Happy Birthday Greeed".

It could be possible that the hips are compatible since it's very likely the coat tails will be flexible as well but the big question is will the pegs on the lower body piece match on both figures.

You can't install a pin into this joint. The connection point is a half circle with about a 2.5mm diameter and it's about 1mm from the center joint that flexes so I wouldn't suggest super glue.

I actually contacted the person this happened to, and from the pictures, what I saw was that the elbow joint was just turned around, not that they had two actual left arms. To fix it, you'd just have to heat up the arm and twist the joint around so that it bent towards the correct side.
